Ladies, Gentleman, kids of all ages. It is time!

“Time for what?”, you ask.

Well fine reader, it’s time for the start of the sports car / endurance racing season here in North America!

“huh, interesting..”

BUT WAIT! There’s more!

What if I told YOU that the first race of the season is a race that lasts 24 hours! That’s TWICE around the clock!

“ok..that’s a long time to be in a race car..what if the drivers needs to..”

BEFORE you finish that thought, let me tell you want else is in store for this inaugural race of this WeatherTech SportsCar Championship!

Not only to do have ONE race happening for 24 hours, but FOUR, count ‘em, you have FOUR races happening all at the same time! ON THE SAME TRACK!

“Wait, what? Four races at the same time?? What are these like junker cars or something??”

NO, in fact you have NEW cars from Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Audi, BMW, Corvette, Viper*, Porsche, Ferrari. Let us not forget the purpose built race cars with engines from Honda! Nissan! Mazda! Ford! Chevy!

All built and tuned and itchin’ to go Go GO!

“Wow! So, what you’re..”

WAIT! I have something very special for you, BUT ONLY because I like you!

“YES, Yes! what is it!!??”

The racing debut of the NEW Ford GT, a car so NEW, you can’t even purchase yet!

“But are the drivers any good??”

Are the drivers from F1 good? How about drivers from WEC? Yes? Some of the drivers come from those series and other drivers from ALL over the world come to race in this VERY race! Of course the drivers are GREAT!

Rest assured, you’re in for some GREAT racing from some of the greatest talents on earth and some of the best cars the WORLD has to offer!!

“WOW! How exactly does one watch this and when does it start??!

Funny you should ask! I’d head on over to website of the series, IMSA. HURRY, it starts today (1/30/16) at 2:40pm EST!

And because we like you so much, here’s a handy spotters guide to help keep track of all the action!
Enjoy!
